Loved the riverside location and off the main highway. Had a nice common garden area outside where we could read and relax after a day of hiking. Short 2 block walk to the main street and all the restaurants and shops. We were traveling as 2 friends and got one of the "family suites" which was perfect size for us...

Gorgeous hotel in awesome location. One block off of Main Street in the best little town in the world! So much to do and see or just hang out and relax and take in the scenery. This hotel is clean, different, pretty!

My wife and I stayed at the River's Edge Motel last year, and I've realized that I forgot to leave a review. The owner's of this place are fantastic. When we called to make a reservation, they had just received a cancellation a few minutes before, which allowed us to get a room. We didn't ask for a discount, but...

We spent 3 days at the River's Edge Motel while exploring the San Juan Mountains (especially the Dallas Divide area). The motel was great, price very reasonable, plus a good breakfast thrown in for free (they had a do-it-yourself waffle maker). Although the eating area was a little cramped, there was nothing cramped about our room. And, what can I...

What a wonderful little gem at a reasonable price! My sisters and I stayed in room 23 which had two queen beds, a couch, sitting area and small kitchenette. The rooms were very clean and the grounds immaculate. Within walking distance of everything in Ouray and right next to the river. We did not eat the breakfast as we wanted...

A very nice room, OK breakfast much the same as anywhere else we stayed, the owners were very pleasant, and I would choose to stay again if I were to visit Ouray. Certainly NOT noisy nor was the room small as per some reviews. We had 2 Queen beds. Make sure you book ahead, it was totally full the night...

Stayed here for 1 night by myself which was a good thing because the room was quite small and would have been too small for 2 people with luggage. Convenient location in Ouray, within walking distance of restaurants, bars, stores. Included breakfast was good but the breakfast room was too small for the number of people staying at the motel...

This is our favorite place to stay in Ouray, we always spend a couple of weeks here every fall. We enjoy the beautiful setting next to the river as well as the very convenient location. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Everything is within walking distance and one of the RV parks is just across the river, which makes it...
